HC Deb 24 April 1928 vol 216 cc820-1W
Lieut.-Colonel GAULT

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he has received an application for the basket industry to be brought within the scope of the Safeguarding of Industries Act, in view of the existing poverty among withy growers; and, if so, whether it is receiving favourable consideration?


I could not depart from the established rule not to give information as to whether applications have or have not been received under the safeguarding procedure.
